Head coach Misbah-ul – Haq chose to resign from the post of chief selector of Pakistan.
As the team’s head coach and chief selector, the former skipper was under intense scrutiny about his dual responsibilities, sources told the channel.
Misbah will formally announce this decision later today at a press conference.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) appointed him as head coach and chief selector in September 2019, facing concerns from many top players and experts.
“Misbah decided to relinquish the post of chief selector after a review of his one-year performance and in light of the newly announced code of ethics,” the report said.
Former cricketer and analyst Sikandar Bakht said it as a positive U-Turn and said Prime Minister Imran Khan must be very pleased over it.
“It is said that wise people take u-turns and I think, albeit late, he (Misbah) took the right step. We have been saying this for the last one year.”
He also slammed the PCB officials who had assigned dual duties to Misbah.
